ACT I, Part 1
Overture
If you want to know who we are
A wandering minsterl, I
Our great Mikado, virtuos man
Young man, despair
Behold the Lord High Executioner!
As someday it may happen
Comes a train of little ladies
Three little maids from school are we
So please you, Sir, we much regret
Were you not to Ko-Ko plighted
I am so proud

ACT I, Finale
With aspect stern
Your revels cease!
For he's going to marry Yum-Yum
The hour of gladness
Ye torrents roar!

ACT II
Braid the raven hair
The sun whose rays are all ablaze
Brightly dawns our wedding day
Here's a how-de-do
Mia Sama
From ev'ry kind of man
A more humane Mikado never did in Japan exist
The criminal cried
See how the fates
The flowers that bloom in the spring
Alone, and yet alive
On a tree by a river
There is beauty in the bellow of the blast
For he's gone and married Yum-Yum

Victor 78rpm Album C-26
